Hardware specialist VBH now stocks Glazpart’s Packers for Professionals range of plastic accessories for the glazing industry.
The range, known informally as P4P, includes all the items regularly used by installers and manufacturers of windows and doors, as well as those who maintain and repair them. P4P products include flat and wedge glazing packers, frame packers, glazing shovels, drain hole covers and screw washer cover caps.
VBH have long supplied such products in bulk packaging, usually of 1000 units or more. However, they report that they have received customer feedback advising that the requirement to order and store these products in bulk is a problem. This is particularly true of glazing and frame packers, which are available in many different thicknesses. The feedback highlighted that it would be a real benefit if these products were available to buy in smaller pack sizes.
P4P addresses this issue by breaking down the products into handy bags containing more manageable quantities. P4P packers, for example, can be ordered in bags of 100, either of all the same thickness or in bags of mixed thicknesses to further cut down on stock holding.
Gary Gleeson of VBH says ‘It’s not always practical for customers, particularly the guys on the vans, to stock bulky boxes of packers and covers. P4P is the perfect solution to this problem as customers can have a comprehensive selection of all the items they need, whilst taking up minimal space. The clearly labeled bags allow quick product identification so save time on site and eliminate waste and costs through ‘lost’ products.
‘We’ll be encouraging our expanding nationwide network of VBH Service Centres to stock P4P, so users will be able to pop in to their nearest Centre and pick up what they want, when they want it.’
